A return participant in the Maccabiah…59 years later

Posted on June 25, 2009

Joe Wohlfarth is affably modest for someone who has represented Great Britain in the Maccabiah games – a quality that is magnified when you discover that he played on the British soccer team twice, in 1950 and 1957, and that he is preparing to represent Israel in the tennis masters, at the age of 77, having made aliya from the UK nine years ago. Wohlfarth distinctly recalls playing soccer with older children when he arrived in England from Frankfurt on the Kindertransport, aged seven.
